These 2 volumes contain 2,200 searchable pages of fantastic detail and beautiful images of full achievements. In addition to the arms, mottoes and family details the entries include the residential address of the contemporary holder and their London clubs!

Good scan quality, almost all pages clearly readable, image quality good to excellent. OCR accuracy 95%+

Note that these volumes contain quite an extensive addenda at the end of volume, which should be checked for updates after consulting the main entries.

NOTES: The fifth edition is also available in a single volume as armorialfamilies00foxd, but this has pages missing and is generally in much poorer condition.
